Ashburn (Aug. 18, 2013) – Briar Woods High School announced Friday that Bruno Corras has been hired as their head girls basketball coach. Corras replaces Jim Harris, who exits the program after one season at the helm.
Corras has coached and trained basketball for over six years in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties. He was the lead varsity assistant at Tuscarora High School for the 2011-12 season. Before Tuscarora, he coached at Broad Run High School as the head freshman coach. He helped coach the JV team as well. Coach Corras was most recently the freshmen head coach at Chantilly High School last year.

Corras was born in Belgium and grew up around the world including stops in the Ivory Coast and France. He also spent some time in Baton Rouge, Los Angeles and Orlando before living most of his youth in the Philadelphia area. He played hoops at the Church Farm boarding school.
Coach Corras stated: “I’m very excited about joining Briar Woods and being part of a great program! I am looking forward to building a strong foundation and bringing excitement to the girls program and the community.”
